When his father is murdered, U.S. marshal Baker comes into town under the guise of an easygoing singing cowboy. He spends most of his time sweet-talking Fay and exercising his vocal cords, all the while getting enough information to pin the crime on her uncle. Baker is so overconfident in
this role it hurts, but then, this was just one of 10 films he made in 1938. The advent of a loyal and loveable canine in PRAIRIE JUSTICE indicates that Hollywood was at least toying with the idea that a cowboy's best friend didn't necessarily have to be his horse or his six-iron.
